To translate a moving form on a static two dimensional surface is not a mean task. The artist here has achieved a magical simulation of real life appearance on canvas in oil paints.

The portrait of Raja Raja Varma has an austere, mystical quality that is more typical of a great religious painting than portraiture. Raja Raja Varma was the uncle of Ravi Varma, considered the father figure of modern Indian art. Raja Raja himself was a painter of merit in water colours. Belonging to nobility, painting was just a hobby with him, but he greatly encouraged his nephew who showed rare talent. The artist has depicted a realistic and convincing representation of the most respected man of Kilimanoor.

The artist has chosen a tanned skin tone for the weather beaten face, which shows the life experience in each line and wrinkle. He sports moustaches and a short beard. The inset eyes, the straight nose and the grim mouth seem a result of careful study. A silk shawl with a brocade border confirms his rich and royal status. The background is dark and bare, adding to the austerity of the portrait.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
